thanks for the advice I pulled the carrier today and it looks like the gears were welded to the carrier as well. I think I am going to go with a detroit locker because like you said it bolts right up to the ring gear. From what i hear they are more durable than aussies as well. Finding parts for this thing is becoming a real hassle because I dont know what exactly the rear end came out of. I spent a good half hour at autozone today trying to get the parts I needed and was unsuccessful I dont think i will be going back there.
